    Re: Only good place to register.

    I understand the convenience of one stop shopping, but consider that registering at more than one place can achieve both goals of providing a good selection while sending a message to the TRU folks. Taking those steps may be a slightly more inconvenient, but Between Target/KMart/Sears and other stores you may find that everything on your baby list can be had pretty easily.

    it was pointed out that my former post was not persuasive or understanding.

    They are absolutely correct.

    In addition to apologizing I would like to encourage anyone not to do business with an "anti" company. Register with someone who supports freedom. Do not compromise for convenience.

    Standing on those principles not only is the right thing to do but is instructive to those around us, especially children.

    I am proud to say that whenever I have said "I will not shop there" when I have changed my mind my daughter calls me on it. With that hawk looking over me you had best believe that I had better have a good reason for changing. This is all to say that I have (hopefully) passed the idea of standards and principals onto my child.

    In addition to being the right thing to do for us here and now, it helps create a better future.

    Guillermo's hit the target squarely here. It is exactly about making changes for a better future for ourselves and our family and friends.

    Principles and consistency are very important while raising children.

    I trust black friday was a bust for TRU?

    I bet it was.

    My son was born last Wednesday. We registered at Target after seeing Toys R Us' policy. I also spent about 800 dollars on baby stuff at Target instead of a TRU affiliate. When Christmas shopping this year guess where we will buy our toys? Yep, Target.

    Anyone else enjoy the irony of "Target" vs. Babies R Us?

    Sadly the TRU here had a massive line through the entire parking lot and extending in to two other parking lots on black friday.

    Thanks for this info, I just wrote a letter and we will be returning the gifts we bought for my son for Christmas.

    I spend time away from my family to train both from teachers and personally to insure that if there is any threat to their life, I can protect them. The last thing I am going to is leave that protection in the car.
